Donald Trump’s comment on Carly Fiorina’s appearance garnered widespread negative coverage. As she played the victim role to the hilt, Fiorina gave an award-winning performance.
But in the brutal world of presidential campaigns, nothing remains hidden for long. This video shows hypocritical Carly Fiorina making snide remarks about Sen. Barbara Boxer’s “so yesterday” hair style (4:00) during their 2010 senate race. Fiorina also used the opportunity to take potshots at Sean Hannitty. “You know how he is,” she tells an off-screen associate.
After watching the “victim” as a catty aggressor, read “The Conservative Case Against Carly Fiorina,” by John Hawkins. You’ll find an establishment-backed moderate with long ties to John McCain. Her newly burnished conservative label is merely campaign re-branding.
RedState’s Erick Erickson unmasked Carly Fiorina in 2010.
“From her praise of Jesse Jackson, to her playing the race and gender cards against Chuck DeVore, to her support for the Wall Street bailouts, to her qualified support for the Obama stimulus, to her past support for taxation of sales on the Internet, to her waffling on immigration, to her support for Sonia Sotomayor, to her Master’s thesis advocating greater federal control of local education, to her past support for weakening California’s Proposition 13, to her statement to the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board that Roe v. Wade is “a decided issue,” Carly Fiorina’s oft-repeated claim to be a “lifelong conservative” was only plausible in the universe of NRSC staffers who recruited her in the first place. She endorsed Federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research for “extra” embryos. She endorsed the California DREAM Act, which grants in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. She refused to endorse California’s Proposition 23, which suspends the job-killing AB 32 climate-change law….”
The closest Carly comes to conservatism is when she inadvertently opens a dictionary to the page where the word is listed.
